Tour Guide for Cappadocia
Has anyone heard of Istanbul Daily CityTours from TTG Agency? My friend and I want to go to Cappadocia and Gallipoli. Can Gallipoli be seen in one day? How many days should we plan on being in Cappadocia?

Three nights, two full days minimum for Cappadocia.

I thought Cappadocia deserved at least 3 if not 4 full days. Depends on what you want to see and do. And depending on your interests, you may not need a guide -- the area is easy to see on one's own.

Agree with Kja that more time in Cappadocia is better, but in two days we were able to take a hot air balloon flight, tour the underground city, hike one valley, tour the open air museum and take an evening walk to Urgup.

We did not hire a guide, except at the underground city at the site. It was a very old gentleman who had actually lived there as a young child and his tour was great.

We did hire a driver to take us to the various sites and pick us up. It came to roughly $10.00 an hour.

I would have liked one more day to drive around on our own.
I also wished for more time in Istanbul.
